About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Paulele is a beautiful Hawaiian-style home right on the closest beach road (Weke Rd.) on breathtaking Hanalei Bay! This tasteful and comfortable home has four bedrooms, five baths, a fully-equipped kitchen, and it comes with everything you’ll need for a wonderful visit to this 'Old Hawaii' Garden Island paradise.

You’ll enjoy spectacular ocean, mountain, and waterfall views from many areas of the home and the world-renowned Hanalei Point surf break is in full view from the convenience of your front porch! With the short path to the beach just one lot over, you're 100 yards from the bay. There are two identical master suites, each with king beds, spacious bathrooms, as well as private entrances and lanais. The third bedroom has two twin beds, which can be converted to a king, and full bath with tub, while the lower level fourth bedroom has a king bed, shower bath, and private entrance.

For your comfort and convenience, there is an outdoor bamboo enclosed hot water shower, laundry room, covered shuffleboard court, and covered hammock, as well as lots of beach gear (beach towels, mats, chairs, umbrellas, and kids boogie boards) and yard games (horseshoes, bocce ball, badminton and croquet). The oceanview dining area seats eight, with additional stools at the bar and a four chair game table with plenty of games, puzzles, and books. Many guests feel our home to be a destination in itself with so many comfortable areas to spend time.

And best of all, the warm water and beautiful sand beach of Hanalei Bay is just across the street! Generally, the ocean is calm in the summer and surf is bigger in the winter, sometimes reaching ‘big wave’ status. Located within ten minutes of several north shore beaches, you’ll have many options for swimming, surfing, wind and kite surfing, snorkeling, and many other activities. The famous NaPali Coast trail has its main access just down the road. A short walk from the home is quaint Hanalei town with its many shops and restaurants.

Hanalei Bay is one of Hawaii’s most beautiful and pristine beaches, with only private homes, no hotels or condos, built on the beach. With Paulele, you’ll have the pleasure of walking to the beach any time of day, from the solitude of sunrise to the glory of a Hanalei sunset, while having all the comforts of home. And unlike those in Princeville and other parts of the island who have to drive to the beach at Hanalei, you’re already there! We love our Hanalei home and trust that like guests before you, you will too! For a virtual tour, go to the end of the photos. We are happy to answer any of your questions and look forward to hearing from you soon to help plan your tropical getaway! Aloha

About Anne Newman

We first fell in love with Kauai during our family's first visit in May, 1992. While my husband insisted we couldn't possibly leave our business for a two week vacation, I planned a week on Napili Bay on Maui and a second week on the South Shore of Kauai. In the middle of that second week, we ventured up to the North Shore. I can still remember the feeling as we first arrived at Hanalei Bay. 'Ahh, this is it!' I proclaimed, and, for us, it has remained so.

The beauty of the Bay was so stunning it felt surreal. The lush green mountains were lined with waterfalls and the Bay seemed to stretch on forever. There was hardly anyone on the beach and no hotels down on the Bay. It felt as if we had gone back in time to the 'Old Hawaii' of my dreams. ...Plantation style homes dotting the beachfront with lots of wide open spaces...

By 1996, we knew we would always want to come to Hanalei and we started looking to buy a home. We started renting the home that is now Paulele, but it was not for sale. We looked for 3 years at just about everything that came up for sale in Hanalei, but didn't like anything as much as this house. 'We need to trust', I told my husband. 'Have faith that if it's meant to be, it will happen'.

Well, it did. Without ever going on the market, the previous owners finally succumbed to our persistence and sold us the home in 1999. We named it 'Paulele' which means to believe, have faith and trust.

In Hanalei, magic happens. Come visit. We hope you enjoy our home and Hanalei as much as we do.

Anne Newman purchased this house in 1999

Why Anne Newman chose Hanalei

At Paulele, the beach is always just a few steps away any time of day. Whether an early morning stroll, a mid-day swim or surf, or a gorgeous sunset, it's all right out in front of you. If you need groceries or want to treat yourself to a dinner out, no need to get in the car. Just walk into town and it's all there. We love our location for these and many reasons!

What makes this house unique

We hope you enjoy the activities that we've offered right at Paulele. We love shuffleboard, horseshoes, bocce ball, badminton and croquet, so we have all of them right there for you to enjoy in our fantastic yard. Do you love to read? I do, so you'll find a bookshelf waiting for you. Plenty of deck space, both sunny and covered, for you to relax and a bamboo enclosed hot water shower that we built ourselves are other nice features. And can anyone really get away without internet? It's there if you need it!

Perfect home in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year returning to Paulele and we keep coming back because it is such a wonderful home for our family vacation. It is so well maintained and stocked with everything you could possibly want for the perfect beach vacation. The location is ideal with beach access two houses down and it being a short walk to the town of Hanalei itself.We love the fact that every bedroom has its own on suite bathroom and tv also! Anne ,the owner ,is a pleasure to deal with as is her property management team in town. We have many houses to choose from in rentals but we keep returning year after year to this one!

The property was perfect. Everything was clean and organized. We did not want for anything.

Ideal location and setting - with vintage Hawaiian detail, this property served everything we were looking form. Discreet mater suites so that two families traveled comfortably. Ideal layout and nooks so everyone had this own space to retreat to when home. Close to beach access and town with all beach amenities handled. Outdoor shower and shuffle board also. My only perfect world wish would be for a firmer mattress in the upstairs master!

Beautiful and spacious Hanalei home in a wonderful location close to beach and town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Paulele Beach house for 8 nights with a mixed family group of 8 people ranging in age from 18 to 58. We enjoyed all the abundant space for gathering or quiet time. We loved using the bikes, shuffleboard court, BBQ, hammock and outdoor shower! It was great to have the supply of chairs and umbrellas to walk to the beach, there was even a beach cart to load up our supplies! The property is very large and the views and bird sounds you wake up too are very memorable. We loved being able to see the ocean from the property. The kitchen was in the center of the gathering areas which I love and was completely stocked with everything you need. The owner was very responsive, kind and so easy to communicate with. We can't wait to return to this truly remarkable property!

This home and location is everything we expected, and more. Location is exceptional, the house is well-equipped, and everything worked... it was really fabulous and we are so glad we selected Paulele. We had sixteen exceptional days here that flew by - a family trip with folks from 21 to 90 - and we really felt at home the whole time. Easy stroll to the nearby beach path (4 minutes walk to the beach), and an easy stroll to the center of town too. The owners have thought of everything, from creature comforts, to beach amenities, to games and books and wonderful outdoor gathering areas.
